Seen some outstanding armories I Great Britain and Russia but as simple as this one is it is by far the best. You've got to see it.

The Armoury is adjacent to the Royal Palace and is easy to get to. There are numerous models of cavalry men on horses from differing dates and the armoury is well-laid out. Everything is well-presented and provides a fascinating insight into Spain's past.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
